Original American Tramp/Folk Art Frame
A charming tramp art frame…a piece of folk art heritage.
Tramp art is the whimsical name given to a folk-art form that was popular circa 1870 to 1940. Boxes, picture frames, religious artifacts and decorative objects were chip carved from cigar boxes and , less often, from packing crates. The wood was notch carved with squares, triangles and rectangles, then layered to create three dimensional geometric pieces.
This type of work became popular in the USA during the depression.
